B&G Vulcan wind display

After adding a vesper AIS my wind information has disappeared, I looked under sources but couldn't find anyplace to select the Triton2. Any B&G users know where I can check to make sure I have the right setting?
The only other thing I did was install the new SD card but that shouldn't have anything to do with the problem...

Re: B&G Vulcan wind display

Not sure why installing AIS would stop wind data.

These sorts of problems are often due to unintentional changes made whilst doing the last upgrade eitheer hardware, software or both.

Wind information will come from the WS* unit usually at the mast head.
The Triton has the capability to display the information as does the Vulcan.

Composite Wind is one of the default pages set on a Triton.
The page options are editable and selectable.
There is a limit to the number of pages that can be displayed.
Make sure composite Wind is one of the listed pages.

On the Vulcan under network there will be a devices menu.
Ensure the wind instrument is listed - rescan if required.
Take note of it's unique identifier.

If not showing check connections.
If it is showing it is possible to view the data stream on the Vulcan to check it is outputting data.

Under data sources - wind, select the wind instrument matching the Unique ID you noted.

Download the user manual from B&G.
It will have pictures and descriptions of the somewhat arcane menus.

Let us know how you get on
